    Abstract

    Teaching Black Masculinity through The Uncanny Black Kirby will examine Marvel Comics’s and Netflix’s Luke Cage: Hero for Higher through the last 48 years of unstably grounded imaginings. The exhibition is an illustrated syllabus with a bibliography and contextualizing imagery that educators can use in a 10-16 week unit. Creating equitable futures begins with revolutionizing how we teach and visualize Black history, Black present/presence and speculate Black futures. Teaching Black Masculinity through The Uncanny Black Kirby will address the issue of how to teach critically at key stages of design ­education, by making visible our implementation of critical thinking/­making and the execution of our strategies.
